Confluence Retirement

In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, the myUSGS Confluence service is targeted for retirement on January 28, 2022. The official USGS Wiki and collaboration space is now SharePoint. Please migrate existing spaces and content to the SharePoint platform and remove it from Confluence at your earliest convenience. If you need any additional information or have any concerns about this change, please contact myusgs@usgs.gov. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Tips/Tricks/Features:

Once created, the forms that a user accesses using the majority of the sample types are designed with specific fields an validations associated with the indicated protocols (i.e. NAWQA or NRSA); however, the User-specified Fish (FGEN) and User-specified Invertebrate (IGEN) data entry screens provide a more generalized set of fields to accommodate a wider variety of protocols. As such, the user, after selecting one of these sample types, is required to choose a "Sampling Method Reference" to ensure that the field sampling protocol is known.
